Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: David O. Staats, MD (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description:This is a multiauthored compilation of pharmacology and therapeutics for older persons.
Purpose:The purpose is to describe the best medication dosing schedule for older persons, incorporating age-related changes in both drug metabolism and drug interactions.
Audience:The audience is persons who prescribe medications, nurses who educate about drugs, pharmacists, and any member of an interdisciplinary team caring for older persons who dispense medications.
Features:The depth of this book is hard to describe succinctly. The detail for each entry, including points on educating the patient, drug interactions, and references is comprehensive. Multiple appendixes that give recommended protocols for administration and titration of drugs greatly enhance the information.
Assessment:Each edition of this handbook gives joy to users and has become an indispensable reference in geriatrics. Besides the newest drugs reviewed in this edition, there are new indexes of names for drugs in other countries. There is even a thoughtful summary of how to write prescriptions to minimize errors. This handbook is a trusted friend.
